The attacks of September 11th dominated headlines across the country and even in some places overseas. Here in Alaska, local and state news became irrelevant compared to the tragedy on the East Coast. KTOO’s newscasts, a staple of Morning Edition programming every weekday morning, took a backseat to national network programming. The day after September 11th, however, we were able to air at least one local newscast.
- U.S. Lisa Murkowski delivers her address at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22, to the Alaska Legislature Joint Session.
- Sitka author Brendan Jones has won a statewide award for his book “The Alaskan Laundry.” Created in 1994, the Alaskana Award recognizes one work of fiction or nonfiction that gives “significant contributions to the understanding of Alaska, exhibiting originality and depth of research and knowledge.”
- One day after he lost both a book deal and a prominent speaking gig, Yiannopoulos said he was stepping down as technology editor for the website formerly run by President Trump's chief strategist.
